Lovely Lattice Thank You Card

I’ve used the free Sale-A-Bration Lovely Lattice stamp set to create this Thank you card. I really like the framed look that can be achieved with the use of the Rectangle Stitched Framelit dies. This is such a useful tool and I find myself reaching out to use it all the time. The stitched edging gives a lovely finish to projects.

All that’s involved with this card is just basic colouring in with Stampin’ Blends. Here’s a list of the colours I’ve used. 

If you haven’t given Stampin’ Blends a try, I encourage you to definitely try a couple of colours to start with. You will find it such an easy colouring system to use. With 2 shades – light and dark for each colour in the set, it is not complicated and blending is very easy. I also suggest having a Colour Lifter on hand for those slips we all tend to have. I may have mistaken a stem for a flower….That Colour Lifter is like magic. I turned red into green just like that! 

The ribbon I have used was part of the Sale-A-Bration offering but due to the popularity of it, Stampin’ Up! is out of stock. Just goes to show that these products are in fact really good value and great quality. You can substitute Daffodil Delight Double Stitched Ribbon instead.

Lovely Lattice – Global Design Project Colour Challenge #gdp173

Hi Friends,

My card today is inspired by the colours of Soft Sea Foam, So Saffron and Petal Pink as I’m playing along in the Global Design Project Color Challenge. 

I immediately thought of creating a vintage look card with an aged feel and the Lovely Lattice stamp set seemed it could work for this. I wanted to recreate the look of cards my parents used to get, over 40 years ago, on their wedding anniversary – the flowers with the distressed look on  cream card.

For many years I used to create paper tole images and when I started creating this card, something inside me snapped (for want of a better word) and made me want to create different layers to these flowers. If you don’t like fussy cutting – fear not. Get yourself some Stampin’ Up! paper snips. They are second to none. Paper, ribbon – I use it on everything. That is all I have used to fussy cut around these flowers. And fussy cutting can be therapeutic in a weird kind of way – just follow the lines!

I stamped several images in Crumb Cake on Shimmery White Cardstock. Using the ink refills of Soft Sea Foam,  So Saffron and Petal Pink, I coloured the images. Then I fussy cut and layered the flowers and leaves, adding sponging around all my images – a mix of Soft Sea Foam and Crumb Cake.
